Yehey, I’m back at blogging. After a long silence and downtime, I’ll be posting some stuff. First off is a tutorial of Chatwing, a chat box you can use on your website. The following post is from Aaron of Chatwing. Note that Chatwing already had a guest post here. This is not a paid post.
If chatting with friends online is something you do everyday, then you might just love using Chatwing. It’s a chatting tool designed to cater the needs of its users efficiently and provides the best chatting experience. You don’t need to be an expert when you want to set it up yourself, because this nifty tool is also user friendly. Here’s a simple guide in creating a Chatwing chatbox and using it in a matter of minutes.
Step 1: Register
First up, go to Chatwing’s homepage and fill up the registration form to create an account. You only need to write down your email and a password for your account to finish it, so it’s very easy. You also have the option to allow the system to create a default chatbox for you after registration by checking on the box provided.
Step 2: Create the Chatroom
When you’re finished registering, you’ll be redirected to the Dashboard page. This is where you can see all the chatrooms you have made so far. If you have checked the box mentioned earlier, then you should be seeing a chatroom there. Each chatroom on the list has three corresponding buttons on the side: View, Customize and Use.
Here’s a brief explanation as to what these buttons do
View – Opens your chatroom directly on your browser.
Customize – Redirects you to the Customization panel where you can modify the chatroom,
Use – Redirects you to the Embedding page.
If you didn’t check the said box on the registration page then you’ll have to create one by pressing the Create chatbox button on the upper part of the Dashboard. Doing so will automatically redirect you to the customization page.
Step 3: Customization
This page is where you’ll personalize your chatbox to fit your preferences. Chatwing’s modification process is vast and offers you a lot of customization options to choose from, so you can be sure that your chatbox can be as unique as it gets. This is also the place where you can change the settings of Chatwing’s additional functions too. The whole process is separated into tabs – this makes it easier for you customize certain parts of the chatbox and skip the others instead of following one straight process of modification.
However, you must take not of the Save buttons found in every tab of the Customization page. You have to press this whenever you make changes on that tab to implement them.
Once you’re done customizing, press the Use button on the upper part of the Customization panel. This will lead you to the Embedding page.
Step 4: Utilizing the Chatbox
The Embedding page will let you choose three options of using the chatbox. You can use it directly via Group Chat URL or set it up on a site as a chat support tool via Embedded Options or Popout options.
If you’re a site owner, then it’s strongly recommended that you go for Embedded or Popout options, but if you just want to enjoy the company of your friends easily, then pick Group Chat URL.
In this tab you are shown with the URL of your chatbox. Now all you need to do is copy that link and paste it into the address bar of your browser. You should see your chatbox moments after that. Inviting your friends over is easy – tell them to do it the same way you did. Just don’t forget to give them the URL of your chatbox though – you can make it shorter and much easier to memorize by using Chatwing’s alias feature on the Customization panel.
Chatwing is a great tool to have if you want to have fun with your friends and families while chatting. Through its excellent chatting capabilities complimented with its features, it can do just that and more. And you don’t even have to pay a cent while using this. Because this chat software is free.
